Depends on how you consume your Bovril as to how weird you may be considered.

Me, prefer it quite thickly spread on hot buttered toast.

The Stegg, and Jumeira Jimm, Dubai Garden Centre is the right place for these.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I can't even find a unit from Amazon that can be shipped.

Sidenote: I discovered Park n' Shop about a month ago, and can't believe I hadn't found this jewel sooner!
Hi, maybe a bit late or naive, but have you tried PLUGINS?

Spinneys? Waitrose? Internet editions of the newspapers?

Do they sell iRobots in Dubai? And are they any good? We'll be relocating soon, and we have a KIRBY, but in a two-storey villa cannot imagine trusting it carrying up and down the stairs to anyone... So we'll need something more compact and quiet... Any suggestions?
And another question is about roses... Do they sell seeds here to grow roses in the garden? And do roses grow in Dubai outdoors?
I tried researching through Garden centre, but they only have photos of outdoor flowers, and so vague, you can hardly figure out what they are...

On hot buttered toast is good.

It's also good with peanut butter. <----- spot the person with one American and one British parent.

Sorry, never really got into peanut butter, although one of our past dogs used to LOVE it.

Death is marginally preferable to Marmite, Bovril and Peanut Butter!
